Get away from it all on the banks of Kamogawa River, a river flowing from the mountains northwest of the city, and running right through town. With areas of cherry blossoms, green banks, and bridges acting as meeting places for young lovers, the river provides a welcome and varied place to evade the crowds and listen to the flowing water. See how the river interacts with the city in the more developed areas, with its waters becoming central to a number of shrines and pleasant gardens.

  • Nice river to meet up with friends and have a picnic under sakura during the sakura season. In summer, many people sit by the river during late evenings to have a nice beer. 
  • Rather, I feel more time than on the first day was more prettily Camo River. The river itself is rather than the Han River stretches a long to the infinitely beautiful and is located close to the shops there scenic beauty is dead, I guess. Lots of ignorant people. If you look at the walking early in the morning and you can feel another kamogawa River.
